That was because just before The Wall was completed, he was fired by Waters for not pulling his weight at the time.  Yet, he stayed on for the tour as a salaried member and ironically, was the only member in that band that made any money off of it.  By the time they did The Final Cut, Wright was long gone.

He came back to Floyd in '86-'87 as a salaried member before rejoining full-time in the early 1990s for The Division Bell

it wasn't about pulling his weight it was about his drug use (at least according to waters).

waters ego ended up ruining the band.  and on a lot of the final cut and division bell songs, i cannot stand his vocals.

Waters isn't on The Division Bell, is he?  Isn't it Gilmour like on Momentary Lapse?

I had to go with meddle. Although it is in part a nostalgia pick... my mom's favorite band is early pink floyd and meddle is her favorite album... so I heard it a lot growing up. I have to admit that listening to Meddle and Ummagumma growing up, it took me a while to realize that the wall and such (my brother's albums) were the same group.

I currently only have 5 pink floyd albums on my itunes so I will only rank those

Meddle
Wish You Were Here
Ummagumma
The Wall
Dark Side of the Moon

(ok I also have a live album, but that came along with the ummagumma discs my father gave my mom a few years ago)

Yep, its all gilmour. AFAIK, the division bell was pretty much gilmour's vocals all the way except possibly for "Wearing the Inside Out" which has Wright doing the lead vocals.

Waters isn't on The Division Bell, is he?  Isn't it Gilmour like on Momentary Lapse?

Agreed... though I felt "Not Now John" didn't fit in with the rest of the album.  I don't care for the recent remastered version with "When The Tigers Break Free" where I felt should've been on The Wall along with "What Shall We Do Now?"  Hopefully, Floyd releases an expanded version of that album. 

I do like The Division Bell though it's a little polished for my tastes in terms of production.

Agreed and agreed. I'm not a big Not Now John fan.
